We reported yesterday Jaromir Jagr‘s aching back was likely to keep him out of tonight’s game against St. Louis, and now it’s official.

Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reported the future Hall of Famer will miss tonight’s game. Jagr left the Stars’ game against Chicago with his injury and if you followed his action with the Flyers last season, these kinds of issues come as no surprise. The only difference this year is that it’s his back acting up and not his groin.

Mark Stepneski of Stars Inside Edge says rookie Reilly Smith will take Jagr’s spot in the top six forwards while recent call-up Colton Sceviour will jump into the lineup. While Jamie Benn recently re-signed, he’s not ready to play just yet thanks to immigration issues coming back from Canada.

    Jagr is like a 1979 Firebird. He ran great for a while now he will nickel and dime you to death. Still hated to see him leave Philly after it took so long to get used to cheering FOR him.

      well not exactly like a 79 firebird. you can rebuild the mechanical parts and repaint the car, put some new carpet and seat covers in and it will run drive and feel just like a new car. and when you sell it you can get your money back out of it. not so much with Jagr….
